IT expense as a percentage of total expense Running internal business systems or maintaining a website is neither your core competency, nor something that generates sales for you; this idea should be reflected in your expenses structure – pay enough to keep systems running smoothly, but don’t chase around for cutting-edge technologies. 91.67% 4
IT expense per employee On the one hand you need to equip your team with appropriate tools, on the other hand you need to know where to stop. Compare your data with benchmarks in your industry to make some conclusions. 80% 400
Support expense per user Similar to the previous one. Having high support expenses (compared to the industry average or your own historical data) might indicate a potential problem. For example, your employees might contact IT too often because there are no clear manuals or people simply were not trained to use informational systems. 69.23% 120
